Auto Clicker is a free portable program for the Windows operating system that provides you with the means to beat idle games by simulating left mouse clicks.
I'm not sure why Idle games are that popular to be honest, but it is one of the most popular Flash and HTML5 game categories out there right now.
Let me explain how these games work. Basically, what you do in the game is click on the screen to earn a currency like gold or gems. After a while, you have enough money to buy your first AI helpers that add DPS to your click rate so that you can sit back and relax if you want.
You can upgrade your own click damage and that of the AI, and unlock new bots that help you as well as each new level that you unlock in the game is harder to beat than the previous one.
It is a numbers game more or less, with you getting more powerful but never quite powerful enough to beat the levels the game throws at you easily.
You even earn money when you are not doing anything, hence the term idle game.
Auto Clicker is a free program that provides you with the means to simulate mouse clicks. Since it is beneficial to click as often as you can in idle games, you may use a program like Auto Clicker to speed up your progress in the game.
Some may call this cheating, but since those games are time wasters, you may want to speed things up just a bit using programs.
You can download Auto Clicker from Sourceforge and run it directly as it is provided as an executable file.
It displays its interface and with it all the configuration options it ships with. What you may want to do is decrease the time between clicks by changing the value in the milliseconds field at the top of the interface.
Once done, load the idle game in your browser of choice, move the mouse cursor over the area you want clicks to be registered in, and hit the F6 hotkey to start the simulation.
Once you are done, hit F6 again to stop the simulation.
In addition to getting more clicks per second thanks to the assistance of the computer, you may also use the tool to rest your click fingers for a while if you have used them to hammer on the left mouse button for a period of time.
Now you: have you ever played an idle game?
